We are in food coma. Tonight we went for a traditional Czech meal and we didn't mess around. We wanted to start the meal off with something light, not too filling, just a "amuse bouche," if you will, so we decided on a light plate of fried cheese balls with sausage, sauerkraut, fried onions, and peppers. Sounds intense, but don't worry, we didn't stop there...
We didn't want to go home hungry so we sampled the authentic beef goulash (top) and the half roast duck (bottom.) The duck won the contest; it was incredible. I think both dishes contained enough salt to kill us both but thankfully we took down a enough Pilsner Urqell to dilute the system.
Oh yeah, the duck came with this lovely side plate of sauerkraut, red cabbage, bread, and potato dumplings...as if we didn't have enough food already.
All in, it was a great Czech dining experience. Cheers.
